Trainer suspended 30 days for animal welfare issues -
HORSE RACING, DEL MAR, Calif. - Trainer Dean Greenman has been suspended 30 days for animal welfare issues related to the care of Surfside Sunset, who was euthanized earlier this year after a bout with colic.

The decision was announced in a ruling published by Del Mar stewards Grant Baker, Luis Jauregui, and Kim Sawyer on Sunday. The suspension runs from Aug. 9 through Sept. 7, although Greenman has indicated that he plans an appeal, the stewards said.

The stewards conducted a hearing on July 23 related to the care of Surfside Sunset over a three-day period in early March. The hearing focused on whether Greenman followed veterinary advice and his daily care of the 7-year-old gelding, according to a summary of the hearing issued by the stewards.

Surfside Sunset, who was euthanized on March 5, raced as recently as Feb. 12 when eighth of nine in a $25,000 claiming race.

Greenman, 54, did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Greenman had two wins from 18 starts in 2019, and is winless with 14 starts in 2020 and this year. He has not had a runner since Surfside Sunset in February.
